From the moment the world was first introduced to Winnie the Pooh and his friends in 1926, the storybooks became instant classics. Almost a century later and generations have gone on to share in the adventures of the Hundred Acre Wood. Our Winnie the Pooh and Friends Collection celebrates the wonderful characters of this family favourite and now it’s Piglet’s turn to follow Winnie the Pooh and Christopher Robin onto a 22 carat gold coin of his own. Captured in one of E.H. Shepard’s original illustrations and finished to Proof standard, Piglet clutches a rather large dandelion as a buzzing bee flies onto the coin – a detail that brings together each coin in the series.
This is the first time the world of Winnie the Pooh has appeared on a UK coin struck by The Royal Mint and just 525 gold Proof coins are available – packaged in a case with a beautifully designed booklet all about Pooh’s faithful friend, Piglet.
